A group of talented artisans has assembled at the Liverpool First Presbyterian Church for the purpose of using our talents to help others. This year we chose as the beneficiary of our sale the Friends in Faith Christian Preschool that runs at our church. Friends in Faith Christian Preschool was founded in 1997 as an outreach of Liverpool First Presbyterian Church. The goal of the program was, and is, to give children an academic start to their lives in a non-denominational Christian-value oriented environment. The Friends in Faith program is unique in that it allows children to begin their experience as early as age two and to continue to build on those experiences with various classes up to the kindergarten level.
We hope that our congregation’s artisans might like to join us in our first year of the “Artisan Fair”. The event will be held on Saturday, May 19 from 9:00 - 2:00. Participants will be asked to pay $20 for an 8 foot table rental (checks made payable to Friends in Faith Christian Preschool.) The artisans are asked to set up their craft items, price them, and clean up at the end of the sale. Weather permitting, the sale will be held in the Liverpool First Presbyterian Church parking lot at the corner of Route 57 and Tulip Street in the village. The sale will be moved indoors if needed. On this same day / time, the annual plant sale for Friends in Faith will be held so we are hoping for a big turnout.
To register for the event, please call the church office at 315-457-3161. The registration form is available at this link. Deadline for registration and payment of the table rental fee is May 5. Questions should be directed to Lisa Bricault (315-715-4303). We ask that the crafts be homemade , no edibles and no topical products allowed. NO vendors please.
Before we know it, spring will be here and at time the Women's Association will have its semi-annual Rummage Sale. The date has been set for Saturday, April 28, 2018 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Please think about helping by donating clothing, small knick knacks, children's toys etc. We will not be accepting used shoes or books this year. There is also a need for bakers, so consider making something delicious for the sale. We need many hands to sort the items, work the day of the sale and clean up after it is over. (men helping is always appreciated). If you have never been a part of this ministry, please think about helping. We would like very much to have you join us. If you have any questions, please contact Nancy Putman.
We, the church, have finished reading Debbie Irving's Waking Up White, but the Lord has not finished with us or our work! Many of you have said, "What's next?"
We will continue seeking where God is leading our church in the fight against systemic racism and prejudice in our next study entitled "Mission" from the PCUSA Engage curriculum.
The resource Engage: Mission has been created to make sharing the good news of Jesus Christ just a bit easier. Putting in a good word for Jesus, especially among people needing to hear that word, is never easy. But joining together to share our faith openly, to enlarge our understanding, to connect our stories with God's redemptive story, to practice various approaches, and to encourage and pray for one another will make our call to be evangelists easier. .....It may not be the easiest thing you have been called to do, but it is by far the most rewarding.
The dates of the study are as follows: Feb. 11, March 4, March 18, April 8, April 15, and May 6. We will continue with a simple snack after the worship as we study and discuss God's Word for us. You will need your Bibles for this study.
May 20 is "Be the Church" Sunday. One of the choices for that day is to participate in a Walk of Faith to observe our community through the eyes and heart of Jesus. The Engage study will help to prepare ourselves for this experience. We will gather for lunch to share our experiences and to pray together for the needs of our community. Study books will be available to you on February 11. No need to sign up, just come!
LFPC has a mighty group of prayer warriors that pray continuously for the needs of our church. If you have a concern that you would like the prayer chain to pray on, contact Leigh Anne, use the prayer box on the home page, or mark "For Prayer Chain" on the prayer card found in the pews. If you would like to join the prayer chain, please contact Leigh Anne.
We are still collecting returnable cans and bottles for the preschool. There is a bin downstairs outside of Fellowship Hall to place your donations. Please rinse the cans and bottles out first.

Due to the generosity of our church family with offerings, a generous
memorial fund, and a successful program, we have the funds to add on to
our play yard and replace pieces of equipment. We are putting together a new and improved play yard for our preschool children and our own young children of the church. A dedication of the play yard in honor of Chris will be celebrated with our combined LFPC and FIF families on Saturday, May 5 from 11-12. Rain date will be May 6 from 1-2.
